    Default Any and all help would be appreciated

    I'm new to archery been shooting for about 2 months now just about everyday. I have all my gear (minus a few things range finder bino's etc) I have a spot to hunt someone to show me the ropes. Got a few leads on deer in the area from cameras, scouted my terrain and seen quite a few big bucks shocking for the size of the land I'm able to hunt but is there anything I can do to increase my chances of getting a deer this season. I looked and there is a 3d shoot the week before season starts I've been strongly thinking about attending other then that I'm out of ideas so any of yours would greatly be appreciated

    Thanks for reading and happy hunting

    Any opportunity you can shoot you bow is a plus. 3Ds are a blast, and can help you judging distance. especially if you spot/stalk.

    Always pay attention to wind direction when going out to hunt. We do what we can to reduce our scent but if it's a bad wind direction for a particular stand, don't sit in it. They don't need to smell YOU but only that something doesn't smell right, and they melt away. Pay attention to the wind direction.

    Default If you hunt in a stand or a blind...

    Do a little setup for distances. Use forestry tape to identify known distances to help you estimate distances quickly.

    I much prefer to be elevated, a good stand of whatever type you prefer is pretty high on my list. Death from above!
